thank you. for those of you who don't know, i had done the automatic signature on my iphone, e-mail and it said bermstein because of the key bad. we'll have a high around 51, 52 and 5:00 47 degrees. it's a small key pad and a small font. we have clear skies this morning. a couple of clouds in the mountains but we're doing well. just cold. 28 in luray and culpeper this morning. 25 in petersburg and 32 in prince frederick. 35 in prince frederick. 32 in bowie from our weather watchers with 41 on the bay. this afternoon bright sunshine, north winds around 10 miles an hour with highs upper 40s to low 50s. monika, over to you. >> thank you, mr. bermstein. no matter who you are, we love you, howard. if you're planning to head around town, you're not going to love this because there's construction causing all of the slow traffic on the southbound side of 295 after eastern avenue and because of that, it's slowing things down. it's late clearing construction along the right side of the
6:01am
road. let's go a little further south on the northbound side of i-95. you can see all the yellow. it's slowing down woodbridge to the occoquan river. let's go to 395 closer to the 14th street bridge leaving shirlington. that still looks good heading for the bridge spanning. back over to -- bridge span. back over to the maps. the beltway looks pretty good. slowing down just a bit at new hampshire avenue. no issues on 270. we'll end with live look on the beltway at connecticut avenue. i'll be back with more coming up at 6:11. back to you guys. >> thanks a lot. a former chief psychiatrist at the f.b.i. is now battling d.c. government efforts banning him from prescribing narcotics to patients he says need them. >> dr. alen salerian will be making an appeal to the d.c. health department because he says his patients are dying. 9news reporter surae chinn is live in d.c. outside the licensing board with more on the drama that just keeps
6:02am
unfolding. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this doctor says he just wants to help his patients with debilitating pain. but he says he hasn't been able to ever since a former employee broke into his office. he says this person stole prescription pads, forged his name and started selling them up and down the east coast for 20 bucks a piece. he says one of these bogus prescriptions resulted in one death and the government officials blaming him now. d.c. police confirmed the burglary. the pain doctor is appealing to the d.c. license board for his license to prescribe class two prescription drugs. he says his patients are dying because the d.c. government won't allow him to prescribe the medicine they need. >> it's been a nightmarish experience because i'm being falsely accused of having murdered and having killed a young man. >> reporter: repeated calls to
6:03am
the d.c. health department went unanswered, but we do know that dr. salerian will be heading before the d.c. licensing board at 1:00 this afternoon here on north capitol street. back to both of you. >> surae chinn reporting live from northwest. while you were sleeping police found a car belonging to a man they say shot three people at a gas station in northeast d.c. last night. they have the car but they are still looking for the shooter. the victims, a woman and two men. they were innocent bystanders at this bp station on benning road. the shooter got into an argument with the station clerk, went to his car, grabbed a gun and began shooting. all three victims are expected to survive. a teenager already behind bars accused of murder is facing another murder charge. the charles county sheriff says the couple was out walking
6:04am
their dog when mebane shot them with an automatic weapon. the suspect was already in jail charged with the murder of a cab driver when investigators de the connection it the two cases. d.c. police arrested mebane and his juvenile girlfriend friday and charged them with the murder of mohammad quadar. last week the driver was shot in the head and left beside his burning cab. mebane is being charged as an adult. 6:04 now. the general petraeus plot thickens. defense secretary leon panetta is cautioning against people concluding that the u.s. commander in afghanistan general john allen, the one who replaced mr. petraeus, that he is guilty of misconduct based on the allegations that are under investigation right now. >> what started as an extramarital affair involving petraeus has evolved into a drama of intrigue and access with many wondering what's next. >> reporter: was it really just friday when we found out about the affair between the very much married now former c.i.a.
6:05am
director david petraeus and this woman, the also very much married biographer paula broadwell. you may know the affair came to light after this woman, 37-year- old married tampa mom jill kelley complained to a friend, an f.b.i. agent. that would be this person here that she was receiving threatening e-mails reportedly from broadwell launching an investigation. and that blue the lid on this -- blew the lid on this. general john allen, the top commander in afghanistan, the man who took petraeus's place is now being investigated. seems when the f.b.i. was looking into those e-mails, they also found 20,000 to 30,000 pages back and forth between jill kelley and allen. some say they're potentially inappropriate, maybe crossing the line. some say eastern a dear or sweetheart, there was nothing going o. in another twist, remember the f.b.i. agent, the one that started looking into the threatening e- mails? he's apparently now being investigated for sending
6:06am
shirtless pictures via e-mail over to kelley. he's now off the case. this is jill kelley's twin sister. what does she have to do with it? she's going through a nasty custody battle right now and allegedly both petraeus and allen both wrote letters on her behalf. full circle back to broadwell. f.b.i. agents did a search of her north carolina home with her okay and took eight to ten boxes with them. she's not talking and neither is petraeus but her father is. he told "the new york daily news" there's more. quote, this is about something else entirely and the truth will come out. there's a lot more that is going to come out. what that is i'm sure we'll find out soon. in northwest d.c., debra alfarone, 9news now. >> what's more? right now 6:06. jessica doyle is watching your money. she has another report for us. >> are you hot? >> i don't know. >> because you have the hottest deals going for christmas.
6:07am
>> check this out. look at that transition. all right. we're going to start this way. check him out. what do you get the person who has everything? a gift card of course. gift cards have yet again topped the list of the most wanted gifts this year by the biggest margin ever if you can believe that. americans are expected to ring up billions in gift card purchases the next few weeks but buyer beware. the fees attached to the cards have gotten a little trickier. with so many types of gift cards to choose from, it pays to read the fine print. despite new protections on fees and terms from the card act of 2009, a new survey shows consumers still need to be aware of what they're buying. bank rate looked at 63 gift cards, eight issued by banks and credit card companies, 55 from retailers and restaurants. cards you can use everywhere, the so-called general use gift cards were far more likely to have fees attached. purchase fees ranging from $2.95 all the way up to $6.95.
6:08am
enactivity fees could eat up $3 a month after the first year. the trade-off, though, you're buying more freedom. >> that's the biggest advantage of one of the general purpose gift cards is the flexibility it gives the person you give a gift card too the store branded gift cards you have to use at the chain or brand so it limits it but there are fewer fees that come with those kids. >> reporter: two-thirds said they would replace lost or stolen cards but some require you register the card or have a receipt. >> you should look on the back of the gift card to find out what they need to do to protect they will selves. >> reporter: 95% of the cards surveyed did not have an expiration date. there's another all purpose gift to keep in mind with no expiration date: cold hard cash. >> oh, yeah. >> we're rolling them out. even with all the fees, the gift cards are more popularren ever. the national retail federation find six in ten shoppers want to get a gift card.
6:09am
here are some other hot gift ideas for you. nearly half would like clothing or books, cds, dvds, videos or video gapes. >> the -- video games. >> the gift card to let me pick my own clothing. >> make it rain, baby. >> make it rain. >> thank you, jess. oh, my goodness. when we return, we want to get a little more serious and bring light to a pressing issue. >> hundreds of children are out there waiting to find a permanent and loving home while they're in foster care. >> up next, national adoption day. we'll be back.
6:10am
you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole.
6:11am
see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like natural grains. i'm eating what i know is better nutrition. mmmm. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself.
6:12am
gldz howard here with your weather first. a cold morning. temperatures in the 20s and 30s. going to be a nice, sunny but chilly dai. 47 by -- day. 47 by noon. driving home still clear and 47. how, here's what it looks like on -- howards are here's what it looks like on the inbound side of 66. pretty typical this time of the morning. the pace improves till you get to route 50 and 123. more traffic coming up at 6:18. >> thanks, monika. each year tens of thousands of children turn 18 without ever having a family of their own. one mother experienced this firsthand so she and her husband who was adopted opened their home and hearts to four brothers. >> i grew up in the foster care system. i never got adopted and i was separated from my brother and
6:13am
sister when i grew up. so when we went on the adoption journey, we -- i knew that i wanted siblings. we were both in agreement that we wanted siblings. it was very important for me to keep a family together. >> saturday is national adoption day. joining me this morning is kathleen, itself executive director of the congressional coalition on adoption institution. thank you for being here with us. i talked to the dunns. they'ren incredible family. it's very rare that someone would take in siblings, especially four boys. how serious is the problem? what do you hope to accomplish with national adoption day? >> sure. it's a problem actually that i think we have the ability to solve. we have over 100,000 children from foster care who are awaiting today to find a family of their own. we purposely picked the saturday before thanksgiving because it's a special time of year for our country where we think about the importance of our families and the time we
6:14am
get together to celebrate that. >> as i said the dunns are incredible but what are some of the misconceptions about adopting from foster care that stops people from opening their homes? >> first of all i think people think they have to be some sort of super human hero. the fact is they have to be able to be a loving parent. a lot of people who have gone through the process and become empty nesters, that's a perfect situation or a single woman who hasn't yet found mr. right. these are the homes where children can find a loving and wonderful place to grow. so one of the things you don't have to be perfect to be the perfect parent. >> if you'd like to get more information about being this human being who just wants to open their heart and homes to children in need, what should they do? >> one of the great things about d.c. is the freddie mac foundation has an adoption expo on december 1. they invite people from the area to come and learn more about adoption. that's one of the ways or they can visit the adoption day website. >> that website we have on our website at wusa9.com.
6:15am
it's this coming saturday. if you can open your heart and your home to a child in foster care. a pleasure meeting you. >> thank you. >> mike, howard? >> thanks, andrea. weather is here now. i enjoy autumn, my favorite season of the year. it sure feels like it now. >> chilly, brink, frosty this morning. -- brisk, frosty this morning. a lot of frost on the pumpkin so to speak. it's going to be one of those bright, brisk days with highs in the upper 40s and low as. as you head toward the bus stop this morning, grab a heavy jacket with temperatures in the 20s and 30s. thankfully the winds are fairly light and sunrise not for a little while. maybe another half-hour or so. we have this cool looking sky in the east. expect sunny skies all day long. 47 by noon. by 3:00 49. i think we could manage to get up to 51 which is where we snuck up to yesterday afternoon. 46 at 6:00. the official high yesterday was 65. that happened right after midnight. this morning we're down to 30 in ashburn and also in centreville. it is 33 in bethesda.

6:18am
i'd say about 16 miles an hour as you travel that stretch toward route 80 and a little further down. let's go back over to a live picture right now. first of all if you're planning to head here on the beltway at connecticut avenue, everything is final. back over to the maps -- is fine. back over to the maps on the northbound side of 95, a disabled vehicle at ie qai ya hash owe eaquia harbor. back with more in a few minutes. it is 6:18. time for another look at our question of the morning. what word did most married couples use to describe their spouse? is it a, understanding, b, stubborn or c, forgetful? we keep talking to women. men, what do you think? >> ronda jones says i'm going with b because it can be so true in some cases. >> we'll have more of your responses and the correct answer in 30 minutes. men, we want to hear what you think. >> if you answer the question of the day correctly on our

6:30am
near eastern avenue. it was cleared by left all of that slow traffic for you. so as you travel through cheverly and trying to get into the northeast corridor, be aware of that slowdown although the lanes are open. i'm going to zoom into the beltway north of town which i'm happy to say is actually kind of better than normal. on the outer loop slowing down right around new hampshire avenue. of course you're going to hit the brakes a time or two as you head for university boulevard. let's take a live look outside and show what you it looks like at connecticut avenue. it breaks loose toward 270 and the bethesda area. back to the maps this time to the other side of town. senior maryland, route 4, route 5, route 301 no issues to report. traveling through oxon hill to the wilson bridge you're fine. here's what it looks like in oxon hill. by the way in prince george's county, 34 rght street at -- 34th street at 1st street, watch out for that activity. i'm going to end with a pretty shot of downtown d.c. back to

6:32am
writing prescriptions for powerful pain medications. >> he makes an appeal today to the d.c. health department. surae chinn is live with more. good morning, surae. >> reporter: good morning you to, andrea and mike. yeah, the doctor hasn't been able to prescribe or help his patients since april. that's when he was stripped of his ability to prescribe the class two narcotics since april as i mentioned, ever since a man he said was a former employee who broke into his office. the pain doctor says a former employee stole prescription pads and alleged they were forging his signature and selling it for 20 bucks each in a drug ring. one of those bogus prescriptions resulted in at least one death. saleria na appears before the d.c. health department licensing board to fight for his licensto prescribe. he prescribes pain medication less consendingtively than
6:33am
other dock -- conservatively than other doctors. now he says his patients are dying because the d.c. government won't allow him to prescribe the medication they need. we talked with some of his patients. >> can't get up to go to the bathroom for fear of pain. >> the bad part about it is it's taken away my quality of life with my family. >> reporter: obviously his patients looking like they are suffering and some of those patients are expected to be here on north capitol street outside of the licensing board. today they're supposed to gather around noon. the doctor is expected to have his hearing at 1:00 today. back to you. >> thank you, surae chinn reporting live from northwest. good news for former d.c. council chairman kwame brown of sorts this morning. as long as he stays out of trouble, he won't spend time in jail for a campaign finance violation. a judge sentenced brown to 30 days in jail but suspended the sentence. earlier yesterday a federal
6:34am
judge sentenced hito one day in custody followed by six months of home detention for lying on loan applications. he also has to complete 480 hours of community service. brown admitted to both crimes in june. a setback for prosecutors regarding the man called the east coast rapist. in a prince william county courtroom yesterday, suspect aaron thomas was expected to accept a plea deal. but when he appeared before the judge, he said he wasn't sure he knew what he was doing. so now it appears the case is headed for trial. thomas is charged with rape and abduction in an attack on three teenagers halloween night in 2009. the acting chief executive of the long island power authority is resigning. it's effective at the end ever the year -- of the year. it comes amid growing backlash from superstorm sandy. new york governor andrew cuomo announced plans to have a special commission investigate the utility company. a group of long island residents filed a class action lawsuit against the company for its response to the storm.
6:35am
it's been two weeks since sandy hit and still 250,000 long island residents are waiting for their power to come back on. jessica doyle is back with your money report. >> higher taxes that could hit us all pretty hard. >> talks are continuing in wact to avoid the so-called fiscal live. it's a mix of tax increases and spending cuts that will take effect next year if lawmakers don't stop them. republicans and democrats have less than 50 days to come up with that agreement. today president obama will meet with top american c.e.o.s to get their thoughts. yesterday labor leaders went to the white house to discuss the tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect in the new year. if things don't change, tax cuts will expire in january. the tax policy center estimates the average household faces tax increases of $3500. let's look at a breakdown here. the tax policy center is estimating if we drop off the
6:36am
fiscal cliff, taxes could get hiked by more than $500 billion next year, nearly 90% of americans would be facing more in taxes, mainly because of the expiration of a cut in social security taxes and many of the bush era tax cuts simply going away. low income households would pay more due to the expiration of tax credits in the 2009 stimulus. higher income households would be hit harder by higher tax rates on ordinary income, capital gains, and dividends as well as new health reform taxes. in the meantime americans don't have a lot of faith that congress will get the job done here. a new poll shows many americans think lawmakers are simply too far apart. they think the lame duck congress won't reach a deal. well, it sort of looks a little rough when you look at it from the outside but there seems to be rumblings of compromises if you look at the verbiage of how people's statements are coming out, that
6:37am
there may be some way they change the write offs is one thing i've heard. >> one thing they've been talking about too, when you're talking about raising taxes on high income earners, the plan as it stands right now everybody earning over $250,000 individually a year, there's a lot of maybe bipartisan support gathering steam for raising that income threshold to a million dollars a year. the problem is that's not going to raise a lot of money because that's only 2% of americans. >> this isn't going to raise a lot of money anyhow. it's mostly symbolic that everybody is in there doing their part. >> there are big problems. the child tax credit will hit americans very hard. >> we usually talk about that a lot on mind over money. thank you. when we return, two local high schoolers are recognized by their community as a leader. >> meet the super teens coming up. plus, we also have a surprise for them. you don't want to miss it. stay here.
